Project Wax #2 (List and Details Included)

It's gotten to the point where I have too much wax.
"Too much wax," you say? "That's impossible."
Let me put it to you this way: my friends and family call our spare bedroom "The Wax Room," that's how much wax I've got.

So, my waxy friend Karen (AKA suukasi on YouTube) and I are doing simultaneous Project Wax boxes!

Our stipulations are simple:
  • NO BUYING WAX until the box is complete.
    • In order to not spread ourselves too thin, we've given ourselves ONLY ONE opportunity to buy wax, and that will be when Lasting Scent Candles reopens.
  • I will (for sure) be blogging about my progress to keep you all in the loop, of course.
    • I may do YouTube videos as well to showcase empties and give my melted reviews. 
  • As a rule for myself, I am going to either blog or make a video of  incoming hauls that I get throughout this project (to get a sense of how crazy my buying habits can be).
  • We can melt things outside of our Project Wax box, as the main point of this is to not place orders until the box is done. (IE: if I want to melt fruit loops wax and none if in my PW box, I am free to do so, I just can't go online and buy any if I ran out).
  • I know of one round robin I am already in, but if I get invited to another, I will allow myself to be in it during my project box.
  • I am going to do what I did last time: if for some reason I don't feel like melting one specific item in the box, I can exchange it for something as big as or bigger than the tart in question.)
I AM ON A MISSION to finish this Project Wax!
I was successful last time, I know I can do it again. And I know Karen can do it, too! :)

That was a pain in the ass to type out, LOL! Anyways, as I said, I will recount my progress each week with melted reviews and a check-off style list. Thanks for reading!


  1. You can doooooo it! I think we all know what it's like to get overwhelmed by too much wax. It's so freakin' easy to do! Last year I had way too much and was stressing about it, so I ended up giving tons of it away in gift bags to family members last Christmas.

    When is Lasting Scents opening? That's one I'd like to try but I think there is an insane TAT, isn't there?


  2. Wow! This means business! I will be cheering you on! Love all your pink peppermints. Look forward to seeing you cross off scents :-D

    1. I'm going to try my hardest! I do mean business. Pink peppermint is my all-time favorite scent. Thanks for the good luck wishes! :)

  3. Verrrrrrry impressive! I watched her video as well & I feel like this is a great idea! I'm on a wax ban myself but I've got some bumps in the road :P it took every ounce of willpower not to order from HHS's July 4th sale!

    1. These Project Wax goals give you a frame of mind as far as what to melt. Sometimes I aimless look at wax because there's so much I just can't decide! You're doing well on your ban, a few slip ups are only human!

  4. I, too, will be cheering you on! Luckily you've got some amazing sounding wax in your box :)
    I'm impressed with your spare bedroom, i'm sure that's a lovely sight indeed!

    1. Thank you for the encouragement! I'm going to try my best to do this. :D

      The Wax Room is sort of's gotten to the point where I don't want to show people for fear of judgment.

  5. Great idea! After digging out and melting a few old favorites that I'd been hoarding and getting very disappointing throw results, I'm really trying to shift my mindset from "wanting and getting" to "melting and enjoying." Good luck!

    1. That's the thing...if we keep wax for too, too long, soy will lose its scent. Paraffin not as fast (or ever, if I'm not mistaken), but there's always that risk! We just have to remember: we can always buy more wax! If one vendor discontinues something, chances are someone else has it!

      Thanks for the encouragement! :)

  6. Good luck on your project wax!! I need to do something similar for the sheer need to get through some of my older wax. Looks like you've got some awesome stuff to melt through! I'm curious to see how you'll like the stuff from Two Timing Tart, definitely let us know =)

    1. Thank you!! You should definitely look through your older wax...I had some FP tarts that were no good anymore. :(

      Looking forward to melting Two Timing Tart's stuff! :)
